We are proud to have His Royal Highness, The Duke of Cambridge, as Patron of London’s Air Ambulance Charity.
The Duke became our Patron in March 2020, after supporting the charity’s 30th anniversary in 2019, during which he flew with the crew to launch the 30 Years Saving Lives campaign and met staff and patients from the service at a number of fundraising events.
Through this experience and his own work as an air ambulance pilot, the Duke has seen first-hand the positive impact our rapid response treatment has for the most critically injured patients in London.
We are honoured that the Duke of Cambridge has chosen to become Patron of London’s Air Ambulance charity after getting to know us last year. The Duke truly understands our work and knows that every second counts in an emergency. We know that with his help as well as the continued support of the public, our crews can reach those who need them most - serving the people of London 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
During his patronage, the Duke has helped raise awareness for our cause by attending fundraising galas and has picked the Charity to be the beneficiary of sporting events, including the King’s Cup. He has also supported our frontline crew, joining operational briefings and championing crew mental health. In November 2021, he invited one of our consultants to speak at The Royal Foundation’s Emergency Services Mental Health Symposium.
It has been a pleasure working alongside HRH the Duke of Cambridge, and we look forward to collaborating with him more in the future.
We are grateful to The Duke of Cambridge for backing us on our mission to save more lives in London. Critical injury from road traffic incidents, falls from height, assaults and other injuries are the biggest killer of people aged under 40, however our advanced trauma doctor and paramedic teams are dedicated to saving patients whilst developing the potential of pre-hospital emergency medicine.
